Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant for 2 hours.

Bright ruby in colour, the nose gives ripe cherry, blackberry, jam, some floral notes and hints of oaky vanilla. The flavours are intense with black fruit jam, cherries and blackcurrant, a touch of buttery vanilla and a delicate floral note coming through. High alcohol balances well with crisp acidity and silky, well integrated tannins. The finish is long with spice and minerality at the end.

Great food matches include game, roast beef, sausages, and cheese.

Fermentation in oak vats lasts for 10-14 days. Maturation in French oak barriques for 14 months followed by 8 months in bottle ensures the very best from the wine. This wine is viewed as a premier cru and it is clear to see why.

Podere Forte has been said to have an “obsessive attention to detail” – but they see it as respecting nature’s gifts. The organic and biodynamic processes are testament to this attention to detail, with an overriding view that the minimum intervention in the growing and fermentation processes leads to the best wines. Although there is some disagreement about biodynamic and organic statuses, the underlying care and prosperity of the vineyard and its terroir are improved immeasurably by the care with which the winery displays in its winemaking. The resulting wines show that the minimal contact and interference ensures fantastic quality wines with unique characteristics.
